The president also promised anyone who breached security they would be met with ‘”the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons.”

I really know nothing about this mayor. But I know looting is wrong.
Register to vote AND vote is the best message she can send.

Dakota County, suburbs join Minneapolis, St. Paul in ordering weekend curfews
The curfews begin at 8 p.m. Friday and extend till either Sunday or early Monday.

May 29, 2020 — 7:23pm

Dakota County and the cities of Bloomington, Edina and Roseville have joined the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in imposing a curfew starting 8 p.m. Friday.

The curfews will last until 6 a.m. Saturday, and then go into effect again at 8 p.m. Saturday, expiring at 6 a.m. Sunday. Roseville’s runs until early Monday.

“During the curfew, all persons must not travel on any public street or in any public place,” according to Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s resolution.

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter declared a state of local emergency Friday and announced the curfew, as well as inviting everyone to observe an hour of prayer from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The curfews do not extend to people traveling to or from work, emergency services, law enforcement, people seeking emergency medical care or fleeing danger, the homeless and the news media, according to a parallel order from Gov. Tim Walz........................

“All Minnesotans in Minneapolis and St. Paul are urged to voluntarily comply,” according to a news release from the governor’s office. “Peace officers will enforce the curfew and arrest those who refuse to comply.”

Violations of the cities’ curfew are a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Dakota County Commissioner Joe Atkins said the county ordered a curfew because “here is a well-founded belief by Sheriff [Tim] Leslie and Dakota County leaders that a heightened risk of significant harm to local residents and businesses exists.................................

Joe Biden Says He's Spoken With George Floyd's Family, Calls For Police Reform

Source: huff post

The former vice president censured President Trump for his “incendiary tweets.”

Promising to bring real police reform if elected president, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Friday that he had spoken with the family of George Floyd, the African American man killed by Minneapolis police officers on Monday.

“The original sin of this country still stains our nation today,” the former vice president said in a video message from his Delaware home, referring to more than 400 years of “Black men, Black women, Black children” whose potential was “wiped out unnecessarily.”

“Everyday African Americans go about their lives with constant anxiety and trauma wondering who will be next ... The anger and frustration and the exhaustion is undeniable.”

Protests broke out nationwide after video showed a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck despite his pleas that he could not breathe. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was fired from his post after the incident and taken into custody Friday on murder and manslaughter charges...................................

It is the latest in an escalating row between Twitter and the White House.
